III. WHO ARE WE?
The company that you are contracting with under these rules when you place an order is Western Lotto Nigeria Limited Registered in Nigeria (RC 1294773).
When you place an order with us, you are subject to Nigerian Law and jurisdiction. We are regulated under licenses issued in Nigeria by the National Lottery Regulatory Commission.
V. KEY TERMS RELATING TO THE TYPES OF PLAY WE OFFER
The following are the key features that we think you should know about our products before commencing play. Each game will have its own set of terms and conditions and you are, of course, advised to read all of the terms and conditions thoroughly:
1. LOTTERY BETTING
When you play certain games with us, you place a bet with us on the outcome of the relevant lottery. It will be clear in the game rules if the game is a lotto bet. Your bet will be subject to the game rules for each game ? these are set out at the end of these terms and conditions and in the play pages for each game.
These games are pool bets. When the game is opened, a set number of entries are to be filled or a time limit to enter is displayed. Once the entries are filled or the time limit is reached, the game will start and numbers will be drawn by a random number generator until there are winners for all of the winning prizes. The pool of money staked, less our commission, determines the available prize fund and the prizes are percentages of that fund. Players effectively compete against the other players in the game.
3. SCRATCHCARDS AND GAMES
These are games with outcomes determined by a random number generator which sets the outcome of the game against the given odds once the purchase is committed.
GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS
